A Huge Ratings Draw, Kimbo Given Second Shot at UFC

UFC president Dana White has said that the only way Kimbo Slice would get into the UFC was by winning The Ultimate Fighter reality show. Well, he retracted that just a bit. Kimbo is out of the running to win the series, but will compete against Houston Alexander on The Ultimate Fighter finale on Spike TV on Saturday night.

Kimbo’s fight with Roy Nelson this season was one of the most watched fights in U.S. mixed martial arts history, so it’s no surprise that Kimbo would be given a chance to continue proving himself in the Octagon.
